This is the full 3-22-2019 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
Solidarity in the time of COVID-19 and "social distancing". This will be the theme explored on tonight's and future episodes of Labor Express Radio for the foreseeable future. It starts with tonight's program which features interviews with Chicago labor and immigrants rights activist Isaac Silver about the launching of the Facebook group, People's Coronavirus Response, which grew from a network of 2 to 10,000, practically overnight, and Jorge Mujica, an organizer for Arise Chicago workers center about the new coalition formed in Chicago in response to the coronavirus crisis as well as political developments in Mexico. Also includes a description of the demands of the new COVID19 Chicago coalition by Maria Moreno, Financial Secretary of the Chicago Teachers Union. Note that this online version of the episode is about 8 minutes longer than the episode that broadcast on WLPN. The radio broadcast version required that the interview with Jorge Mujica be edited for time. The full interview here includes Jorge’s comments on the political scene in Mexico, including some provocative, perhaps controversial arguments in regards to AMLO’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, for which Mexico’s president has received considerable criticism.
